Aditi Ashok finishes 2nd at qualifiers, and gets a spot in the Women's British Open

Aditi Ashok, an Indian Golfer, was qualified for AIG Women's British Open.

The Indian star of 23 years, who left the Indian nation in awe after finishing a painful fourth at the Tokyo Olympics, was among the two Indians fighting for one the 15 spots for the Major.

The event will take places at the Carnoustie Links just three miles from Panmure. Aditi was the sole second place finisher, while Tvesa Malik (73) finished T-29th. Tvesa missed out on a berth for the Open.

Aditi's Open appearance brings her total Majors appearances up to 19, compared with 18 for the Amundi-Evian Championship last month. This is her fourth Major. None Indian, man or woman, has ever played as many. Each year, five Majors are held by women as opposed to four for men.

Aditi, who was at one-over following 12 holes, did well enough to reach 2-under and place solely second.

American Lindsey Weaver finished one shot behind her, while Nicole Larsen Broch (amateur Kirsten Rudgeley), Cheng Ssu Chia and Magdalena Simmermacher tied for 3rd at 1-under.

Johanna Gustavsson finished 17 holes at 1-under. Aditi's best Major finish was T-22 in the Open at Royal Lytham, St. Annes. This will her fifth appearance at Women's Open.

Panmure, which dates back to 1845, is the 16th oldest golf club worldwide. The tight fairways make the course a challenge and have challenging greens.

The Par 70, 6,242-yard course by James Braid can be found between Monifieth or Carnoustie on the east coast.
